“Clean and good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2011

We stayed one night at the Crystal Plaza before our cruise embarkation. It was a great location for walking, dining, and shopping. The breakfast room was in the Asian restaurant next door, and it was a nice variety. Room size was adequate with a balcony on 3rd floor. The first floor room looked out on a pipe, so the desk staff graciously changed it. Street noises may be loud, so bring earplugs.

Wonderful location close to Stureplan. Old building but everything nice and clean. Breakfast not extravagant but ok.

This hotel is great value, close to the city centre and within 5 "slow" walking minutes from Stureplan T-Banan (Metro / Underground) train station.
Fabulous breakfasts, & courteous staff.
My Room, a standard single was large compared to most single rooms I have stayed in.
The room was clean with private WC / Shower room & also included a fridge.
The only down side was there was no air conditioning (on booking it stated there was A/C in the room) This would have come in useful, as the hotel is in a very trendy upmarket part of the city with noisy late night bars, clubs and restaurants. Stockholm can be very hot in summer so Air Con' or sleeping with an open window is a must. Luckily I had packed ear Plugs as I know city Centre hotel are often noisy.
Noise is only a problem for rooms facing the front - rooms facing the back court yard do not suffer from noise pollution.
However, having stayed in Stockholm over 20 times I have now found the Perfect City Centre location Hotel & will be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: Ask for a back of hotel room for a quiet night's sleep

In a grand old building, this hotel offers clean rooms, basic services, nice staff and good breakfast buffet to a very decent price (compared to Stockholm in general and this area in particular). At times (check out their webpage) you can find a single room for around SEK 1000 / night (sometimes less!) which is a steal in this area - a two minute walk from Stureplan.
Each room is different, both in size and design. From really tiny (bed, desk, bathroom w shower, TV, wifi) to beautiful spacious rooms with a view over Stureplan. A kettle and tea/coffee in every room. Nice when you arrive late and just want a cup of tea before bed..! However, the price list reflects the room type so you're not in for great surprises. The rooms are always clean with comfortable beds, but again - sometimes the decorations is a bit out of date. If you're easily disturbed by traffic, ask for a room facing the courtyard. If you're picky about which room you'll get - call and talk to reservations! They're very helpful.
In the reception area you'll find a small lounge area with bar. OK to meet up with friends for a drink before you go out or to sit and relax for a short moment, but not a place I would spend the evening at (you find nicer places right around the corner). A Chinese restaurant is located in one part of the hotel, offering lunch and dinner. In addition to the a la carte menu, they offer a set menu (main course and dessert) for around SEK 100. I often end up having that, when too tired to go out for dinner. In the mornings, that's where the breakfast buffet is served. Here you find everything you need from cereals and muesli and a variety of bread to eggs, waffles, fruit, juices, etc.
Free WiFi throughout the hotel, but in some rooms the connection is a bit slow.
There's a small gym and a sauna in the basement. I've checked it out and it looks totally OK (haven't tried it though).
I always stay in this hotel when in Stockholm for business, even if my employer has an agreement with a higher rated hotel nearby. I get all that I need for my stay - to an excellent price at a top location :)

Room Tip: If you're easily disturbed by traffic, ask for a room facing the courtyard.

Crystal Plaza Hotel is an economic option to stay in Stockholm.We stayed here for two nights.The Central station is just 10 mins drive from the hotel.The pier is at a walking distance from the hotel from where you can catch a ferry to all the major tourist attractions.Overall a worthwhile stay.

Crystal Plaza Hotel in Stockholm is a good choice in a city where prices are way to high. The hotel is well located, clean, the room we have got was espacious, they havefree wi-fi and at least one computer in the lobby for the guests. The breakfast was very good, an excellent surprise!
It is not far from the stations of the T bana (underground), including the Central station - where we arrive from the airport Aralnda Express (which is marvellous - 20 minutes from the airport to Central Station).
So I would recomend this hotel for those that do not want to pay for a luxurius hotel and want a good hotel with a fair price.
